Carrigg seems to have eked out the race for Irmo, St. Andrews, and Seven Oaks county council seat

LEXINGTON, S.C. (Sydney Pendrick) Beth Carrigg seems to have won the race for Lexington County District 7 after the polls closed on Tuesday evening. Carrigg received 1,363 votes or 51.69% of the ballots cast, giving her the seat. Lloyd Higbe fell just short of winning by claiming 1,274 votes or 48.31%. These results were as of 11:00 p.m.Tuesday. It was a close race that went back and forth much of the night with both candidates making revitalization of the older portions of the area a top priority in their campaigns.

Former Lexington County District 7 councilmember Phil Yarborough decided to not run for reelection, giving Carrigg this opportunity to serve Lexington County and help make the decisions that will hopefully see the county and that district improve and grow. The race for District 7 was overall respectful with no evidence of nasty or negative campaigning. Both candidates put up signs, knocked on doors, and local businesses helped to spread their candidate’s messages for a better Lexington County.
